News: FunimationNow shares its spring simulcasts for the UK and Ireland (updated)

As of today, FunimationNow has opened its doors to UK and ROI viewers at last. While they were making the big reveal, they gave us a quick recap and a few more details on the springtime shows available subbed to Britain and Ireland:

My Hero Academia, every Sunday at 10am

Izuku has dreamt of being a hero all his life—a lofty goal for anyone, but especially challenging for a kid with no superpowers. That’s right, in a world where eighty percent of the population has some kind of super-powered “quirk,” Izuku was unlucky enough to be born completely normal. But that’s not going to stop him from enrolling in one of the world’s most prestigious hero academies. Now, the only thing standing between him and his first class is the academy’s formidable entrance exam—nothing a little private tutoring from the world’s mightiest hero can’t solve.

Endride, every Saturday at 8pm

Beneath the earth’s surface lies the unknown world, Endra. After touching a mysterious crystal, Shun Asanaga finds himself in this new land and his only way home lies with helping the vengeful Prince Emilio. Recently imprisoned, Emilio vows to take back his rightful throne from King Delzaine.

Check out the latest adventure from the creator of Rurouni Kenshin and the studio behind Durarara!!

 

 

 


Rainbow Days + club RAINBOW

Assassination Classroom (Season 2), every Thursday at 6:55pm

Class 3E is about to begin their second semester! And while some things have changed, the class assignment is still the same: kill their teacher before the end of the year! Easier said than done since Koro Sensei’s made it clear he won’t go down without a fight. Will these students be able to take down the tentacled monster that moves at Mach 20 before he can destroy the world?

 

 

 


Haifuri
, every Saturday at 5:30pm

Akeno Misaki and Moeka China share one goal—to join the Blue Mermaids! A group of fierce women, the Blue Mermaids are key to keeping peace among the seas and coastal cities in this age of maritime trade. To be a part of this elite group of sea protectors, they must succeed at Yokosuka’s Marine High School. Akeno and Moeka, together with their classmates, will take the plunge to become Mermaids!

 

 

 


Concrete Revolutio
(Season 2), every Friday at 2pm

What if superhumans were real? Even better, what if every fabled superhuman existed at the same time, in the same place? Titans from outer space, life forms from a mystical world, phantoms and goblins from ancient times, cyborgs created by scientists, relics that rose out of the ruins of ancient civilizations. In another Japan, it’s not just a question of “what if”—it’s a reality. Some of the superhumans choose to keep their identities a secret, while others bask in their superhuman fame. Jiro Hitoyoshi, member of the Superhuman Bureau, keeps track of their doings.

From the creative force behind Fullmetal Alchemist, including director Seiji Mizushima (Fullmetal Alchemist and Mobile Suit Gundam 00) and writer Shou Aikawa (Fullmetal Alchemist), comes a new adventure with high-flying action.

You will be able to watch the first season at FunimationNow as well.

Kumamiko – Girl Meets Bear, every Sunday at 6pm

What does a bear know about life in the big city? For Machi Amayadori’s sake, hopefully a lot! The young shrine maiden has spent her whole life in the rural mountains with Natsu, her talking guardian bear.

Now, at fourteen, she wants to take a chance and attend high school in the big city. Can Natsu really prepare her for city life? Orwill his wacky trials be too much for even Machi to bear?

 

 

 

Shonen Maid, every Saturday morning at 1:30am

After the loss of his mother, Chihiro is left alone. With no known family left, he has to find a way to move on. Things aren’t looking good until a chance encounter with the young and handsome Madoka—who turns out to be his wealthy uncle! Madoka offers him his home and all Chihiro has to do is clean up after the messy, irresponsible man. The problem? This job requires a uniform—a maid outfit!

 

 

 


Three Leaves, Three Colors
, every Sunday at 5pm

Futaba Odagiri is the energetic transfer student who befriends Teru Hayama, the class president who is meaner than she looks, and Youko Nishikawa, a former rich girl who still acts like a princess. Three very different girls who only share one thing: the kanji for leaf in their names. Balancing school and life is hard enough, but what about dealing with clashing personalities on top of it all?

 

 

 

 

FunimationNow also noted that they’ll post their broadcast dub schedule sometime in the near future. In the meantime, if you haven’t seen them yet, take a look at the UK and Irish websites.
